Rick Santorum won't tolerate pink bowling balls

Today, at an event in a bowling alley, presidential candidate Rick Santorum told a young man bowling with him, who apparently had reached for a pink bowling ball, "You're not gonna use the pink ball. We're not gonna let you do that. Not on camera," according to Reuters reporter Sam Youngman.

The Human Rights Campaign's vice president for communications, Fred Sainz, struck back.

"This is another example of Rick Santorum intentionally making ignorant statements that have a real impact on LGBT people," Sainz said in a statement. "Kids have enough to worry about. They don't need Rick Santorum telling them that using a pink bowling ball is a bad thing. In this case, he's advancing tired gender norms by implying a boy should be ashamed or embarrassed to use a certain color bowling ball."
